AMD's Slowing Data Center Biz

A gloomy outlook during its financial update caused shares of Advanced Micro Devices (Nasdaq: AMD) to drop by 6.47% in after-hours trading on Tuesday.

Financials: AMD reported earnings of 60 cents per share in the past quarter and revenue of $5.35 billion; both were below estimates.

Details: Operating income for Data Center, AMD’s largest unit, dropped. Revenue for the Client segment declined and there was an operating loss in the category. In addition to the overall decline in revenue and in gross profit, operating expenses jumped 18%.

Outlook: AMD expects revenue of $5.3 billion in the current quarter, which is below estimates. While the company expects growth in the Data Center and Client segments, it also expects declines in the Gaming and Embedded segments.

Final Thoughts: Shares are up 40% this year, but AMD needs to turn things around in order to keep investors happy.
